Is there any chance that a 1300 rated player can beat a 2700 rated player?

A 1300 player can beat a 2700 player only if the 2700 intentionally loses.  It is virtually impossible.  It is even more ulikely than a 6 year old beating a competitively trained Nigerian Marathon runner in a 26 mile marathon. Those guys are really good. I believe they can run the whole marathon runnng an average of less than 4 minutes a mile. Same concept.

You're insane. Nobody has done that for 3 miles, let alone 26.

They average about 5 miles per hour, but that's still damn good. Update. I meant 5 minute mile. About 12 miles per hour.

actually, they do 12+ mph. An it's the Kenyans and Ethiopians, not so much Nigerians.

Scottrf

I think he meant 5 minute miles, but they are normally around 4:50 I believe.

I wonder some times if our imagination is wider then the Univers?  But,  wait a minute;   Don't you see!  The answer is wright here in this words I just Wrote. what do you think?     O, O,  IM pfren the monkeys may need some time to learn the game, more importantly the consept of the word [ GAME ]  itself.

This is called mythbuilding, at least outside India. There is no such player in the FIDE lists.


His name is Aryan Chopra. You can check out.

Yeah sure!

He can just smack a punch on his face!

Aryan Chopra has a FIDE rating of 2051, which isn't close to what you have mentioned. Oh, and he is actually eleven years old, not 9... He is #13 at his age in the FIDE rating lists (which is still good enough).

Now the topic has been changed.

Thanks for the corrections, Firebrand. I was too hammered to bother checking, but my point was; somewhere in the universe, a 1200 rated alien is probably rinsing a 2700 at space chess ;)

I cant find the game now, but there was a famous loss by a gm (Walther Browne?) aganst a 1500 or so amateur. It had something to do with a prepared opening trap, and I think it was a simul.

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. Crips. My brain's going to hell.

If the 2700 is very distracted or impaired, yes. Under normal circumstances, each playing their best game, no.

He could probably be distracted, and impaired, and still win.

A 2700 player would beat a dozen 1300 in a blindfold simul while playing cards...

Remember Morphy ?
